Local Designers featured in NBC's Fashion Star

Tomorrow night the spotlight will shine on two local fashion designers who will make their reality-show debut on NBC's "Fashion Star". Featuring host and super-model executive producer Elle Macpherson along with celebrity mentors Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos, the series will give 14 designers the chance to win a multi-million dollar prize to launch their collections in three of America's largest retailers: Macy's, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue. Caprice Willard (Macy's), Terron E. Schaefer (Saks Fifth Avenue) and Nicole Christie (H&M) will serve as the judges who make on-the-spot decisions as they vie for the right to purchase and exclusively carry the work of the up-and-coming designers each week. At the end of each episode shoppers will have the chance to immediately purchase the winning designs showcased on the episode that week.

-Meet Lizzie Parker-
Local designer Lizzie Parker specializes in modern knitwear for women. Her clothing has been featured in Daily Candy, WWD, Lucky Magazine, Eco Stiletto, and California Apparel News. Having designed everything from the most essential basic “Lizzie Tee” to red carpet looks for model Summer Rayne Oakes, Lizzie draws inspiration for her designs from daily life.

-Meet Lisa Hunter-
Designer Lisa Vian Hunter has been designing stunning original fashions since 2003. Inspired by shapes and styles of the 1950s, 60s and 70s Lisa launched her first retail store in Palo Alto, CA in 2006 and went on to debut her Seattle store in 2009. Lisa travels to textile shows around the world in search of unique luxurious fabrics and materials to use in her collections. Check out Lisa's video profile!

The show will premier Tuesday, March 13th on NBC at 9:30pm. In the end, the winning designer who successfully combines business and fashion will be named NBC's Fashion Star and receive the prize of a lifetime - $6,000,000 in orders for capsule collections in Macy's, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
